whatever the appeal of partying with snoop dogg, i'll be curious whether he feels the same way in three years

From ESPN.com
The brother of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter had his sentence for driving with a revoked license increased from six months to five years because he failed to report to jail on time.

Tank Carter was scheduled to report to a Broward County prison on Jan. 6, but decided against it when his brother told him the Steelers had a good chance of going to the Super Bowl...

'Even knowing what I know now, I would do it again,' Carter said. 'It was the greatest game in my life.'

Carter watched the Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks from the 50-yard line in Detroit and partied with rapper Snoop Dogg after the game.

The brothers have been close since growing up in a rough section of Pompano Beach.

'I would have done the same thing,' Tyrone Carter said of his brother's decision. Winning the Super Bowl meant 'we finally made it together.'
